WI ASLA Advocacy Alert!

Hello WI ASLA Members, Partners, & Friends,

WI ASLA reached out to the Assembly Committee on Transportation and spoke before the Senate Committee hearing on February 4th at the state capitol. While there was good conversation we do not know if the Senate version of the bill will be amended to include landscape architects in the language.  We do know the morning of February 11 the Assemble Committee on Transportation did approve AB 820 without amendments and the bill will now head to the Assembly floor for a vote. The date of the vote has not been announced yet.

But there is still one more chance to have the Assembly bill amended!

We are asking that you immediately call and/or email your state representative to respectfully request that AB 820 be amended on the floor to include landscape architects in the definition of design professional.

Anyone is welcome to contact their representative regarding this…friends, family, neighbors, colleagues…as long as they are Wisconsin Residents…so please spread the word!

We are looking for interested individuals to participate in the USGBC West North Central SITES Collaborative group. This regional SITES Collaborative would be a group of key stakeholders interested in leadership roles focused on promoting built environments that are well planned, designed, developed and maintained to protect and enhance the benefits we derive from healthy functioning landscapes. The collaborative will start out by determining its mission and learning about the SITES program to better assist our community.
